Best: People-Watching

Located in the Liberty Hotel, this rustic-chic restaurant with brick walls and an orange-topped bar joins the hotel’s other trendy spots, Clink and Alibi (the building was a former jail), as a hip after-work hangout for financial district suits. Well-known Boston chef Lydia Shire (Biba) presents an eclectic menu ranging from lobster pizza and tandoori scallops to wagyu steak and a mozzarella bar.
